I know this isn't really related to social media, but I figured a lot of you have contacts in the digital media realm and might be able to help me out.
My boss is asking me how much development of a smart phone application might cost so she can build it into our next budget proposal. We're looking to create something that provides details on construction projects in the City of Ankeny and we have no idea where to start.
I explained to her that cost would likely be determined by the complexity of the project and the hourly rate of the developer. Problem is, I don't know any developers off the top of my head. Sure, there are online resources, but I'd prefer to work with someone local, if possible.
So, do any of you have leads on a smart phone application developer in the Des Moines area?
